Law Student Engagement with Current Events and Social Justice

I was honored to play a small part in the effort to support 167 members of Congress in the filing of amicus briefs in two pending cases before the U.S. Courts of Appeals challenging the Trump Administration’s current immigration bans affecting six predominantly Muslim countries.  Read about the effort here.  The students really drove this effort and their leadership, grit, and integrity is so inspiring to me.  Thank you Andrew Carpenter, Elyssa Klein, Mary Ann Krisa, Graham Molho, Martha Mahoney, and Gloria Sprague for giving us all hope that there is a new generation of emerging public interest lawyers ready to take up the mantle of social justice and access to justice!
